Please encourage friends and neighbors to attend a meet-the-candidate event on August 12, 2016 to meet Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for State Superintendent of Schools.
Please let me know if you can attend and if you will help encourage others to attend.
Even though Dr. Holtz is willing to stop the federalization of education, the state Republican Party has refused to fund or support any conservative candidate for State Superintendent of Schools. Therefore, it is imperative that Dr. Holtz raise funds from the electorate to travel the state several times during his campaign season.
Please encourage people to attend the next BCRP membership meeting on Monday, August 8, at 6:30 PM to learn why the state Republican Party will not fund or support any candidate for State Superintendent and to clarify the power held by the State Superintendent. Encourage your friends and family to attend the meet and greet to discuss the reasons why the State Superintendent is more powerful than the governor or the legislative bodies when it comes to shaping educational policy.
All questions and concerns about the Wisconsin educational system are welcome.
More information about the event is provided in the following press release. PLEASE NOTE ONE CHANGE: Dr. Holtz will be staying from 3-7 PM, NOT 3-5 PM.
A meet-the-candidate event for Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for State Superintendent of Schools, is being sponsored by several retired teachers. Join us on August 12, 2016, at Quillen’s restaurant at 2670 27th St, Mikana, WI. From 3 to 5 PM. Dr. Holtz will be present to answer your questions about the Wisconsin educational system.
Eliminating Common Core, returning local control of schools, closing achievement gaps, and empowering teachers are a few of the goals Dr. Holtz has for his first year as State Superintendent of Schools.
Dr. Holtz is concerned that the state of Wisconsin spends over 500 million dollars every year on expenses related to dropouts. Solving this problem will be a first priority for Dr. Holtz.
Nearly 50% of new teachers leave the profession before their fifth year in the profession. Dr. Holtz will be discussing why this phenomenon has been prevalent for so many years and what he intends to do to empower teachers. Dr. Holtz believes that the quality of our teaching staff is directly related to the quality of education provided in any educational setting.
Monitoring and regulating school choice options and the methods for making those options accessible to parents will be discussed during the meet-the-candidate event.
Citizens who have been unhappy with Common Core Academic Standards have asked the Governor and the legislators to repeal Common Core. The Governor and the legislators have no legal authority to repeal any decisions made by the State Superintendent of Schools or local school districts.
To learn more about the responsibilities held by the State Superintendent of Schools, join us on August 12, 2016 and discuss your educational concerns with candidate Dr. Holtz.
